Mechanical testing of soft musculoskeletal structures like tendons and ligaments are essential to medical advances. A long-standing limitation for testing these structures in isolation has been the ability to solidly fix both ends of the tendon. Cryogenic fixation technology was leveraged into the development of a dual cryogenic fixation (DCF) device. Results of the study show that the DCF allows ...

  • CompAct™ Arm: a Compliant Manipulator with Intrinsic Variable Physical Damping

    Humans exploit compliance in their biomechanical muscle-tendon-bone actuation structure to enable robust and safe interaction with the environment and utilize the elastic energy stored into muscles and tendons to obtain large energy efficiency or high output mechanical power peaks at their limbs. From the robotic/mechatronic point of view it is clear that emulating such a property in robotic actuation systems enables the achievement of performance which is not possible with classical stiff designs. In contrast to this, transmission compliance introduces some disadvantages as e.g. typically underdamped modes which reduce the achievable control bandwidth, stability margin and accuracy of the controlled system. These limitations are solved in mammalians by means of physical damping which clarifies why these biological systems are able of performing fast and smooth yet accurate motions in their limbs. This motivates this work which consists in the analysis and development of the CompActâ„¢ Arm, a novel compliant manipulator with intrinsic variable damping. This is probably the first robotic system to exhibit these diverse bio inspired characteristics. A motivation analysis is initially presented to show how the drawbacks introduced by compliance can be overcome by means of physical damping. The second part of the paper presents the mechatronic development of the robotic manipulator and preliminary experimental results.

  • Biophysics of the Generation of EMG Signals

    This chapter describes the basic concepts of generation and detection of EMG signals. Specific emphasis is devoted to the generation of muscle fiber action potentials at the fiber end plates, their propagation along the sarcolemma, and their extinction at the tendons. The chapter addresses the topics of crosstalk between nearby muscles and selectivity of the recording systems. It discusses the relationships between muscle force and the surface EMG. The EMG signal is generated by the electrical activity of the muscle fibers active during a contraction. The signal sources are the depolarizing and repolarizing zones of the muscle fibers. EMG signal features depend on a number of anatomical, physical, and detection system parameters. Considering all the factors related to the volume conductor and the signal sources that influence the characteristics of the EMG signal, a reliable relation between EMG amplitude and force needs a subject specific and condition specific calibration.

  • The Evolution of Control and Adaptation in a 3D Powered Passive Dynamic Walker

    Humans demonstrate speed, efficiency, and adaptability when traveling over rugged terrain. Bipethi robots modeled on biological designs could replace or assist people working in difficult environments. However, current research into humanoid robots has not produced practical machines. This paper explores the use of evolutionary robotics to evolve a simulation of a ten-degree of freedom bipedal robot. This machine demonstrates many of the properties of human locomotion. By using passive dynamics and compliant tendons it conserves energy while walking on a flat surface. Its speed and gait can be dynamically adjusted and it is capable of adapting to discrepancies in both its environment and its bodies' construction.

  • Surface EMG Decomposition

    This chapter provides an overview of surface EMG decomposition techniques, along with their basic assumptions, properties, and limitations. Surface electrodes measure the electrical activity of several nearby muscle fibers that are active during a muscle contraction. The electrical activity of each fiber can be described by a single fiber action potential (SFAP) that propagates from the neuromuscular junction towards the tendons. There is large diversity of decomposition techniques that can roughly be categorized either as template matching or latent component analysis (blind source separation) approaches. Decomposition of surface EMG is a powerful tool enabling noninvasive insight not only into muscle control strategies, but also into peripheral muscle properties. It provides unambiguous information on physiological parameters of individual motor units that can easily be interpreted. The identification of motor units (MUs) discharge patterns from surface EMG signals, acquired during dynamic muscle contractions, needs to be addressed.
